What deck has longest wb while still being compact enough?
deck wise if you want slightly shorter, a misfortune is a shorter narrower fortune 33.5 x 9.25 inches with a 24.75 inch skateboard wheelbase a loaded truncated tesseract is 33 x 9.5 inches with a 26 inch skateboard wheelbase…
neither have a flat base, but both are awesome decks.
hi5ber have a narrow/smaller DH deck the rebel but it is still 35 inches…
I’d go with the trucated tesseract, I’m thinking of adding one to my quiver…
but for length it is 2 inches longer than the Loaded Truncated Tesseract and the wheel base is 3.5 inches shorter?
in the comp. of bolt holes closest to nose & tail the trunc. tess. wins no?
(& 9.25 width is just too narrow for me)
Truncated is only 1 inch shorter than the brightside(34"). But you can drill the front and tail for more wheelbase easily
Either way… There’s options out there… didn’t mean to step on toes @Cobber.
no toes squashed bro, I just can’t “think” of a deck with truck mounts closer to the nose and tail… please prove me wrong dude?
and as I said 9.25 is too narrow for my cave man feet so I am biased
You probably already saw this, just thought I would toss it in.
I’m very happy with my Landyacht Mummyboard . Turns on a dime, no wheel bite, nice grip. 15lbs all in, 10s2p battery, single motor.
The Powell-Peralta Lance Mountain Resissue is short (30.5") but has a huge tail and a long wheelbase and is rather stable at high-speed
Nice! I just received my Powell Peralta Mike McGil reissue! I’m pairing that with the 10s5p from DIYEboard, which should arrive soon. I’ll share the build when I have more of it together. So glad you mentioned the Lance Mountain option, it encouraged me to look into an old/new PP board like I use to ride as a kid back in the 80s. BTW, the McGil has one of the longest wheelbases in the PP reissue line at 16.625". The longest is the Jay Smith at 17.25" (https://www.skateone.com/powell-peralta-jay-smith-model-reissue-white-skateboard-deck-10-x-30-25)
If u have some money and want a high quality build that’s a bit shorter I’d take a look at this boi (https://www.sickboards.nl/en/longboards/10417-bossa-platform-28-rio-deck-only.html#/232-flex-light) I’ve been neglecting to ebordify it because I like kickpushing it so much XD.
That Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade Mike McGill Skull and Snake is the best or one of the best decks in the world for esk8, in my opinion. The Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade Lance Mountain Future Primitive is pretty close or equal…
The super-wide front, put some traditional kingpin trucks on there and those are stable even up to high speeds – and they’re shortboards with big tails that are super-easy to carry. What else could you ask for? I have those and tailless longboards and those are better by far.
The front of that Bossa is dope af, maybe even more than the Mike McGill Skull and Snake, but the lack of a huge tail is a missed opportunity and a deal-breaker. (Yes, I see the short tail that probably doesn’t even really work to pick up a 20+ lb board.)
Awesome. Yeah, it is super wide, and has a nice concave. It’s deep which might challenge attaching the enclosure, but others have used extra foam, which I’ll try as well. I just installed my Tail Bone tonight and it looks so cool! I ordered an authentic old school nose guard also, and went crazy with a new helmet and some light elbow and knee pads. I can’t wait!
Yeah I’ll have to agree with you there. Although we should note it’s original intention, which is not to be a short board deck at all, so that may be why has missed the ball there (it’s playing a whole different game). My favorite part would definitely be the flex. That is something ill-found in the shortboard market. All in all maybe not what your looking for but interesting nonetheless
Check the landyachtz line up. Heres a fiew 30-33" boards with around 22 to 24 wheelbases.
Really diggin this battle axe too…in a diff deck design tho
